International Colour Day History and Significance

Colours are one of the most influential phenomena in people’s lives and also one of the channels that contribute majorly to the perception of reality. The adoption of this day was proposed in 2008 by the Portuguese Colour Association, whose president, Maria Joao Durao, presented the idea of the International Colour Association. In 2009, the proposal was agreed among the members of the society, comprised of national associations and members representing more than 30 countries. They also came up with a logo that was a result of international competition. The winning design was announced at the 2012 meeting of the International Colour Association in Taipei, Taiwan. It is displayed as two circles from an eye, with equal half of rainbow colour and black representing light and darkness, day and night.

Many activities associated with colours are slated to be hosted around the world to mark International Colour Day 2020.
